Adopt a Pollinator

The Adopt-a-Pollinator program is a great graduation, birthday, Mother's or Father’s Day gift and an easy way to show support for Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden.

The Adopt-a Pollinator program is available through August 3, 2014.

Proceeds benefit RSABG education programs, exhibits and conservation efforts. Supporters are able to select three adoption levels, all of which include personalized donor recognition.

Butterflies at the Garden

Visit the Butterfly Pavilion at Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden from May 10 through August 3, 2014, and enjoy a unique experience that allows you to wander through a changing ecosystem over the season. Interact with free-flying butterflies and the plant life that supports them! You’ll see, up close, how butterflies obtain nectar, and watch caterpillars feed on leaves and go through the process of transformating into adults. Read more about the Butterfly Pavilion at the Garden.

Keep the butterflies (and moths and birds!) fluttering with a gift that allows you to sponsor the Garden's programs in support of our native pollinators and the plants they need to thrive.

FAQS

Can I take my butterfly, moth, or hummingbird home?

All the pollinators stay here in the Garden, but we highly encourage adoptive families to visit often! Stay tuned for our upcoming exhibit in the Container Garden on Plants and Pollinators, too.

How long will it take for my adoption package to reach me?

When you purchase your adoption package in the Garden Gift Shop, you can take it home right away. For phone orders, please allow at least two weeks for shipping and delivery.

What if I’d just like to donate to the program but not receive the adoption package?

You can always choose to donate more than the cost of the package or make a donation and not receive the package. Any outright donation (above and beyond the actual cost of the package) is tax-deductible and goes directly toward supporting RSABG’s conservation efforts.

For more information about making donations to RSABG, contact the Development Office, at (909) 625-8767 ext. 222.
